Who Owns This Issue?
Melody Kokoszka

President Bush's new series of television ads, called "Steady Leadership in Times of Change," shows the importance of the war in Iraq and national security in his re-election campaign. Democrat John Kerry says his own war record, and administration mistakes, give him the edge. Join NPR's Neal Conan and guests for a discussion in an ongoing series during the 2004 presidential campaign.

Guests:

David Sanger, New York Times White House Correspondent

Pat Towell, visiting fellow at the Center for Strategic and Military Assessments and Congressional Quarterly reporter for more than 25 years

William Galston, professor at the School of Public Affairs at the University of Maryland and director of the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy. Galston also served as a deputy assistant to President Clinton.
